Sedan driver who mowed down 4 scooters turns himself in

The hit-and-run driver whose sedan knocked down four scooters, killing one man and injuring three others on Monday night has turned himself in, city police said this afternoon.

The 21-year-old offender surnamed Luo got his driving license in March and borrowed the BMW 320i from a friend to drive for fun, but he wasn't familiar with the car and lost control driving at high speed, Pudong police said.

Luo surrendered to police last night and is now in criminal detention as police investigation is ongoing.

The accident happened at 7:55pm on Jinjing Road in Pudong. Luo made a right turn from Jiahong to Jinjing and lost control of the SUV which mowed down four scooters on the road. But the car did not stop. It knocked down a tree and crashed into a factory gate.

One scooter driver got entangled under the SUV and died on the spot. The other three suffered injuries to their spine, thigh and head respectively.

Luo fled the scene after the crash.

Police said they identified Luo as the driver yesterday through investigation and called his family to persuade him to turn in.

It was unclear whether Luo was drunk at the time of driving.
